This model improves the interface of the vehicle cruise controller. Much better feedback is provided on the screen for the user to understand how to use the model and good use is made of colour to direct the user's attention. The buttons have also been made clearer in whether they are currently on or off. In addition this model now has an excellent tour document which is very useful for new users to understand how this model works and what can be experimented with. [Chris R]
